    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — The Opportunity Agenda was launched 10 years as a project of the Tides Center to build the national will to expand opportunity in America. It does this by providing communications training and resources to social justice leaders and organizations working on a range of issues from criminal justice reform to immigrant rights to economic equality for all. This grant provides general support to the Opportunity Agenda to equip diverse leaders and communities with the skills to use traditional, social, and cultural media in ways that inspire civic engagement and inform critical policy debates. It supports the Opportunity Agenda to develop and launch a new online system, the LinkTank, to alert leaders to breaking news events and media opportunities, offer tools and advice for framing the debate, and network together leaders working on similar issues.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Tides Center The Opportunity Agenda $500,000 between 1978 and 2017.
